Ok so me and my friend have each a website. We host anime episodes. Now if someone finds the url of those episodes he can just put it anywhere and anyone that clicks and download, our bandwidth will go down. What i want to do is only allow 2 sites from which these files can be downloaded from. How do i do this ?

By the way, The url of both sites :

http://www.darkocean.org
http://www.bleachzest.frih.net

You can do this by using .htacces file. Just take a look at http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/htaccess10.shtml
Good luck.

That is not true. If people only posted links to episodes and others clicked on those links to download, it is not your bandwidth which goes down, but of the site which has hosted the episodes.

No you cant just stop the bandtwidth usage. everytime a file is downloaded it costs the server bandtwidth. Only when you remove the downloads you can save the bandtwith of the server. or you can host them on filefront, you have unlimited bandtwith on filefront.

Why isnt anyone understanding. I dont want anyother site to link to my downloads taking my bandwidth. I want to stop other people from downloading my files from other sites.

I Now understand your point, you have to unable hot linking.
You can read about that on the site thats allready posted:

just disable hotlinking to zip and rar and movie files.

Thnx. Will it work with FLV files too ? Because on my site i got a lot of FLV videos and i dont want any other site to simply link to it. And can i give access to only 2 sites ? Or is it only the directory that its in ?

The first post to mention .htaccess is where this thread should have ended. That's the answer.
